Client Reviews
Attorney David Grimaldi is a truly exceptional criminal defense lawyer. He represented me in a case in Suffolk Superior Court, and I know that I received the absolute best possible representation. Mr. Grimaldi met with me often, always kept me informed, answered my questions, and fought hard for me in court. Mr. Grimaldi always believed in me. I knew I could always count on him. When we went to trial and I was found not guilty, I knew it was because of Mr. Grimaldi's hard work and dedication. If you need a great criminal defense attorney, I highly recommend you call Attorney David Grimaldi. H.E.
I highly recommend David Grimaldi. He was always responsive and sympathetic to my situation, from the very first call at the height of my crisis until the case was eventually dismissed. In court he was articulate and clever without ever appearing to upset the other attorney or judge presiding. I hope I never need him again, but if I did I wouldn't hesitate. P.R.
At some point in our lives we all run into a situation we can not control and need help. I was lost and after 2 lawyers and no help in sight I got lucky and someone referred David Grimaldi to me for my federal case . After 19 days without even a chance for Bail/Bond, David stood up and fought for me and I was released. My case made national news and was highly publicized. Not only was I released, but the prosecuting AUSA was clearly outmatched in arguments as David is the best at making adjustments and knowing what to say and do for his clients. In the end I could not have in my wildest dreams expected such a great result in a case that appeared to have no light at the end of the tunnel. I would recommend David 100 times out of 100. Honest and professional. You won't find a better man to fight for you than David. Adam P.
